Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Asleep or awake? Local sleep in health and disease
Date: Tuesday, November 22nd
Time: 12:05 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Stephanie Jones, UW Department of Medicine and Public Health
Abstract: The group of researchers at the Wisconsin Institute for Sleep and Consciousness at UW-Madison is arguably one of the best in the world, and some truly ground-breaking work on the function of sleep has been generated here. This talk will highlight much of this work and will focus, in particular, on the brain’s remarkable capacity for sleeping (and waking) at the same time, and the implications this has for brain health, development and disease.
